Why Your Children Should Experience Theater

Childhood is a time of imagination and wonder. Especially in an area so saturated with beauty like Asheville, children see the world around them much less how it is and more as it should be. For parents and adults, our role is to facilitate the space for their innocence. We can fuel their creativity in many ways:

  • Encouraging unstructured outdoor time
  • Limiting television and screen time
  • Allow children space to paint and craft
  • Taking kids on family hikes that explore vast open views, thick forests, rolling rivers, and majestic waterfalls
  • Reading books with our children 

The theater is centered on wonder and imagination. We cannot stress enough how often we have seen theater help our students come alive. Here are 7 reasons we recommend exposing children to theater.
